Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki said the commission risks “the start of World War III” if it chooses not to give the green light to Poland’s recovery plan.
In an interview with the Financial Times, the Polish prime minister accused the European Commission of holding a “gun to our head” over negotiations over funding for Poland’s recovery program and conditionality of the rule of law.
“This money should have been paid already. This is a violation of the procedure by the Commission “, added Morawiecki.
He also threatened retaliation, including potentially opposing EU climate change policy. In the interview, he demanded that the Commission withdraw the request for the daily fines paid by Warsaw for non-enforcement of the July judgment of the Court of Justice on the invalidity of the Disciplinary Chamber of the Polish Supreme Court.
“We will get this money sooner or later,” he said, warning that the later we get it, the stronger the evidence that there is such discriminatory treatment and a dictatorial approach by the European Commission. .
